Plantation Suites
Ranked #6 of 20 Hotels in Port Aransas
Reviewed 13 October 2011

We stayed in the Palm Suite at the Plantation suites in Port Aransas,TX on 10/6/11. This place is DIRTY! There was a ton of dust on top of the TV cabinet, along the baseboard and behind the bed. WORST YET when we took a whirlpool a whole bunch of black stuff and sand came blowing out the jets when we turned it on. YUCK!!!!! What was that?!?!?!?!?!? YUCK!!! On top of this I informed the assistant manager at the desk the following morning and she casually said she'd get maintenance to check it out as she gladly accepted my full payment. There was no offer to reduce our rate much less even an apology. I've stayed in much nicer Motel 6's, Super 8's and LaQuinta's. I TOO WILL NEVER RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE!!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

We stayed for a weekend get-a-way. We were able to check in a little early & the front desk was very nice. However, the grounds & rooms are filthy. There is a dirty mattress & boxsprings by the dumpster in back and our floors & bathroom had dirt caked all over them. We ran out of toilet paper and i was told that no one was available to bring it to us so we would have to come up to the lobby to get it. Our deadbolt on the door was busted & there were guys drinking beer in the parking lot from about 6pm-til 10. Not noisy but at $189.00 a night i expected much more. We will not be going back to this place ever again.

We are glad you chose us for your vacation stay but are very dismayed your stay was not up to the standards we strive to hard to obtain. At the time you came, we were in the process of changing out all of our old mattress with brand new pillow top ones. The only place we could put them was in the back of the property until they could be picked up. We are sorry they were such an eye sore. During the evening when the housekeeping staff has left, our front desk is unable to get away and leave the front desk, we are sorry for this inconvience. We do hope you will come back again.

We have stayed here on two separate occasions, the first time prompting a return visit. The room we had was huge, and the kitchenette was a nice amenity. The complimentary breakfast was good as well. We were also impressed with the friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is pet-friendly, which is a plus.

Stayed here with the kids & doggy. The staff were friendly. We stayed in a room with two queen beds, and it was clean & adequate. Beds were a little firm. There seemed to be lots of guests at the hotel but it was not noisy. Kids enjoyed the pool. There's a big grassy area to walk your dog, and bags to clean up after them. If you want to bring your dog with you to Port Aransas, this hotel is one of your best options.

I stayed here with two teens and a big dog. The staff was very friendly over the phone and when checking in. This hotel accepts pets for a fee, that was the main draw for me. It is very pet friendly.

The room was nothing special, but it was average size and clean, a little musty smelling which is typical for coastal rooms. I appreciated that the floor was tiled so we had no worries with the dog.

There are a lot of amenities, volleyball, horseshoe pits, BBQ's and picnic areas, a gazebo. There is a nice pool along with a hot tub. They had a nice selection for breakfast.

The location to the beach could have been better. The beach isn't far, but the access to it is. We had to walk quite a ways to get to a beach access. It wasn't a bad walk, nor a very long one, but it wasn't just a short jaunt.

I base my ratings on the star level of the hotel. Of course a 5 star is going to be nicer than a 2 star and it's not fair to compare them in my overall rating.

We booked our room a week in advance and paid for it. Our room was not clean yet and then they gave it someone else and offered me another which was not ready and did not have the same accomodations we paid for. Their sofa beds have old thin mattress and stained. The pictures on their wedsite is not what you get. We skipped their free breakfast because it was a mess. No one there to clean. Staff was not very helpful and inconsiderate. I recommend staying at the Holiday Inn. Rooms are clean and friendly staff.

Another wonderful trip to Port A, and another WONDERFUL stay at Plantation Suites. We were greeted like family, and just had to wait just a few minutes for a room as they had a large group leaving. The staff could not of been nicer. Our room was nice, clean and spacious. A welcome, that's for sure. We have never had any noise problems here, and we have always felt secure and safe. A big bonus in my book. The breakfasts are always great, and LOVE the waffles....Beach access in either direction leaving the hotel is just a couple of minutes away. So easily located. We cannot wait to come back.....Thanks again you guys for yet another incredible memory!

Room Tip: Book in advance....
